This weeks happenings

Well it's almost been a week. Goodness how time flies. I do have a FO that went kind of wrong. On Sunday I decided that I needed a break from socks, what was I thinking? I looked in my stash and found some Knitpicks bare. I went to the commissary to buy some kool aid. I picked ups 10 packs of Black Cherry. Dyed it up and it turned out more like Strawberries n' Cream. The color grew on me and I figured that once I knit it up and I still wasn't completely happy with it I could always redye it right? So I cast on for the Koolhaas hat from Interweaves Holiday magazine. Love the pattern but something when wrong. I don't have free Circular US size 8 so I didn't try it on as I was knitting. Finished the hat this morning tried it on and it's WAY to short. I like my hats to come over my ears and this one just hit the top. I should have done about 2 more repeats of the pattern. Oh well lesson learned. It fits my 5 year old sons head but it's way to girly for him. Since I now have a girl in the familynow, I put it on her head. She still has plenty of room to grow but I think that she is going to be the lucky recipient of this hand knit hat. I will be buying some yarn for my hat soon.
As for the Killer Drunken bees socks. This is what happened. A trip to the frog pond. Oh well, guess that I will be knitting plain ol' socks with this one maybe for the boys.And did I mentioned that I am so glad that my hubby's home. He surprised me the other day with these...ain't he sweet!

Well that's about all. I did get my haircut and colored yesterday. Maybe I can get Travis to take a picture so that you can all see. :) Happy Knitting and thanks for reading.
